About the Las Vegas Urban League

Helping Las Vegas and The Surrounding Communities in Clark County NV

The Las Vegas Urban League (LVUL) was established in 2003 by local philanthropist Jacqulyn Shropshire as a community action agency. Her mission was to empower communities and ensure equal opportunity for low-income people throughout Clark County, NV.

The agency, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is governed by a Board of Directors and has engaged the community to identify critical needs and develop innovative solutions to meet these needs. 

LVUL is committed to providing all racial, cultural and ethnic populations with equal opportunities to become self-sufficient and to eradicate the conditions that lead to poverty.

LVUL is an affiliate of the National Urban League founded in 1910, which is recognized as a premier social service and civil-rights organization in the United States.
